What we wouldn’t give to know what is really going on behind-the-scenes of a FX Channel’s “Powers”, a wire net’s instrumentation of a Brian Bendis and Michael Oeming comic book of a same name. Despite prior reports that a network was still gung-ho about a uncover (though hasn’t been means to find a slot for it on their schedule), and was now rewriting/reshooting a commander to give it a improved possibility during indeed airing, this latest news that most of a expel has been “released” from their obligations to a uncover is, well, not a unequivocally good pointer that things are move in a certain direction.
Our latest bad news refurbish comes pleasantness of actor Khary Payton (the voice of Aqualad in “Young Justice”, and who plays Cutter on “Powers”), who tells Comic Book Resources (via CBM) a following:
The thing is that it’s so cool. It’s SO cool! we adore it. we adore ‘Powers’… The aloft ups wish to do this so badly since they know it’s going to be a coolest thing on television. But it’s hard. It’s a tough concept, we think, to get. And they had to step behind and start over again. From what we hear, a devise is still relocating forward. Unfortunately, we – all of a actors – got released. They’re literally starting over. They wish to do it again. And opportunely and unfortunately, I’m doing another show, and we still wish over wish that we can be a partial of ‘Powers.’ But I’m happy to be working. But things are function with ‘Powers’ absolutely. There are scripts being incited out. They only wish some-more element to hear that they’re removing it right.
When he says, “all a actors”, we consternation if he means everyone, including a show’s lead, Jason Patric? We already know that Lucy Punch, a womanlike lead, has already left after sharpened a commander for other projects once it was transparent “Powers” had bogged down, so whatever happens, that purpose will have to be reshot. Then again, we never unequivocally bought Patric as a lead of a weekly superhero show, so I’m not too damaged adult if he, along with a rest of a cast, has been jettisoned for an wholly new organisation of actors to improved accommodate whatever new proceed they’re going for.
That is, if FX isn’t only messing with us, and has already given a uncover adult for dead. After all, remember that NBC did roughly a same thing with David E. Kelley’s “Wonder Woman” show, and we haven’t seen a second of that already shot pilot, either.
Here’s a full talk with Payton (the “Powers” things starts adult during a 9:55 mark):
